Eggnog - There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays

There's nothing quite as classic as the Christmas Eggnog! Traditionally made with bourbon, this drink is a Christmas classic that everyone knows and loves. Here's how we'll whip up our own homemade eggnog recipe at your next holiday party or event!

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat 4 egg yolks until they are light in color. While mixing, whisk in 1/3 cup sugar and continue to beat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Add in 1 pint of whole milk, 1 cup of heavy cream, 3 ounces of bourbon and 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Stir to combine well.
  • In a separate bowl, beat 4 egg whites to soft peaks. While beating the egg whites, add in 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat to stiff peaks.
  • Whisk the egg whites into the mixture. Chill and then serve!

Hot Toddy - For Jolly Good Fun

The Hot Toddy has been coined as the 'grandfather of hot drinks' to many! To us, there's nothing quite like curling up by the fire place after the party dies down and drink a steaming cup of pure holiday joy. Our bartending service would love to concoct our favorite Hot Toddy recipe for you at your next holiday function!

  • In a mug, we'll fill boiling water and let sit to warm.
  • Next, 4 cloves will be stuck into a lemon peel and set aside.
  • Replace water with freshly boiled water.
  • Next, our bar service likes to add in 2 teaspoons of brown sugar to dissolve.
  • Then, we add in the lemon peel.
  • Here comes the best part! We'll add in 1/4 ounce of freshly squeezed lemon juice, along with 2 ounces of Scotch. It has to be authentic!

Agua de Valencia - Santa's in Spain!

Perfect for Christmas morning, this classic cocktail from Spain is just what you need to get into the spirit of the holiday! The ingredients are simple! 200 mL of freshly squeezed orange juice, 50 mL of your favorite gin, 50 mL of your preferred vodka, 700 mL of Cava or champagne, and a pinch of sugar. Here's how POUR Bar Services can share one of our favorite Spanish libations at your next event:
